Edd Kimber: The Boy Who Bakes, food writer, and Great British Bake Off winner
Coming from a family of bakers, Edd’s first memory is standing on a stool in the kitchen helping his mum to make mince pies. He’s come a long way since then. After studying politics at university Edd decided to channel his energy into baking. Back in 2010 when The Great British Bake Off made its debut on BBC2, Edd was crowned the show’s first ever best baker. Since winning The Great British Bake Off Edd has made baking his full time job, writing three cookbooks - The Boy Who Bakes (2011), Say it with Cake (2012) and Patisserie Made Simple (Oct 2014). His blog, theboywhobakes.co.uk, has been named as one of the best UK blogs by Woman and Home Magazine and as one of the best baking blogs by channel4.com.
